GIF: Team USA misses gold medal by inches when shot hits goal post

With Team USA leading 2-1 with under two minutes to play, Canada pulled its hockey goalie for an extra attacker. This GIF shows just how close the Americans were to winning an Olympic gold medal when a shot bounced off the goal post of an empty net.

Canada would go on to tie the game at 2-2, and then finish off Team USA in a sudden-death overtime period.
